Twas the night before the census
As Caeser had ordered
All people must return to their homeland
And have their families counted

There was Joseph and Mary without a room
Mary in pain, her baby's birth did loom
Joseph trying to find a place to stay, if he is able
Finally, there's a place but it's merely a stable

Mother and Father are safely tucked away under the roof
But now comes the moment of God's truth
With no time for a house wife
Mary gave Jesus his birth in to this life

Out in the fields the shepherds did lie
Attending to their flocks, looking in to the peaceful sky
When there came a bright light, from the heavens above
An Angel of God's telling of the new baby of love

The Shepherds came searching for this new child
Arriving at the stables with all the animals of the wild
A make shift of a house, all the creatures were stirring
Yes, even the lowly field mouse

Born this day was proof how God sees us
A new Saviour, our Lord, our King - JESUS!

In this tiny town of Bethlehem, the child did wait
It was a few years before the family would migrate
But in that time, the baby would grow and have fits
Soon would come the Wise Men to shower him with gifts

Be refreshed, renewed, and encouraged this Christmas season. Celebrate the birth of Christ with your friends and families, recognize that the true blessings of the season are not what you get but instead of the love you give!

May God Bless you all this Christmas season, and throughout the new year!
